Mardi Gras festivities take over New Orleans

Mardi Gras festivities kicked off in New Orleans, Louisiana, on Tuesday (March 5).

Crowds packed the streets for a day of parades, dressing in costumes and collecting beaded necklaces thrown from floats and balconies above.

“Mardi Gras,” or “Fat Tuesday,” is the final day of carnival, devoted to unfettered frivolity and partying in the final hours before Ash Wednesday, which begins the Lenten season of sacrifice in the Catholic Church.
